SPEAK UP, STAND TOGHTHER AND STOP BULLING!
Bullying in Aotearoa is a real problem. We have the third-highest rate of school bullying out of 36 OECD countries and one in five workers feels discriminated against or bullied at work. Those bullied are far more likely to experience mental health issues.
Pink Shirt Day works to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms and supporting
schools, workplaces and communities to be safe, supportive, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.
What an awesome week our Student Leaders put on raising awareness to SPEAK UP, STAND TOGHTHER AND STOP BULLING!
To celebrate this important kaupapa we did the following:
Monday - Chalk Drawing
Tuesday Teacher vs Student Ki o Rahi
Wednesday - Bake Sale
Thursday - Just Dance
Friday - Pink Shirt Day and Assembly
What an awesome way to finish the week with a Pink Shirt Fashion Show and reminders around the 5 upstander actions:
1. Support the person experiencing Bulling
3. Call it
4. Leave and act
5. Get some other help
All funds raised were donated to Inside Out Charity.
